Flea Market Hammer Id Please

Recommended Posts

I found this a couple of weeks ago at a local flea market for a few dollars.  There are no identifying marks.  Does anyone know its original use.  And any suggestions for smithing use as is or modified? Thanks!

take the edges off round the face

 

its not a punch though

The hammer is 1-1/2 inches across the large face, and 1 inch across the smaller face.  And 8-1/4 inches face-to-face.

 

Handle length is 10-3/8 inches long.  The weight is about 4-1/2 pounds.
